JOCKEY QUOTES AGAPITO DELGADILLO, STEALTHEDIAMONDS, WINNER: “She got away pretty easy and she was just breezing. At the top of the lane, I asked her for more and she put it in another gear and we came home easily.”TRAINER QUOTESMIKE PUYPE, STEALTHEDIAMONDS, WINNER: “With her speed, we certainly expected to be in front. When the favorite (Just Grazed Me) made her bid through the stretch there was some concern because she’s such a good horse, but Agapito (Delgadillo) kept our filly going.“Looking at the race I figured we were the lone speed. Just Grazed Me on paper was the one to beat, enough for me to worry about her. Apache Princess is a really good sprint filly; it was a very good race between the three fillies, and our kind of speed has to be respected. When she cleared and broke loose for home I was just praying she would get to the wire.“We claimed her (for $80,000 last Oct., 27) with this in mind, because opportunities like this don’t come along too often. Her speed makes her dangerous, especially when there’s no other speed in the race.“It’s nice to get such a quick dividend on the $80,000 investment.”NOTES: The winning owners are James Driver and Ywachetta Driver.

It’s been a tough old season for Mohamed Salah so far.Salah, the Liverpool forward, was voted the Premier League’s best player last term, as he scored a record-breaking 32 league goals and helped the Reds reach the Champions League final. 3 gameday cracker Sky Sports presenter apologises for remarks made during Neville’s racism discussion However, things have not been going the Egypt international’s way since then.He’s been rusty since the beginning of the 2018/19 season, and is struggling in front of goal.In fact, statistics show Salah has been the worst finisher in the Premier League this term, despite him bagging three times in Liverpool’s unbeaten start to the campaign.He struck in Liverpool’s season opener, a 4-0 defeat of West Ham, and also found the back of the net in wins over Brighton and Southampton. changes However, those three goals have been scored despite Salah taking a remarkable 32 shots, with seven of those failed attempts labelled as ‘big chances missed’.But the most telling proof of Salah’s wayward finishing this season is just how poorly he is performing in relation to his expected goals.Expected goals (xG) is a statistic used to determine the quality of every shot taken throughout a match, with an xG of 1.00 being a shot which should be scored every single time it is attempted. Liverpool news live: Klopp reveals when Minamino will play and issues injury update TOP WORK Oxlade-Chamberlain suffers another setback as Klopp confirms serious injury Green reveals how he confronted Sarri after Chelsea’s 6-0 defeat at Man City Liverpool’s signings under Michael Edwards – will Minamino be the next big hit? revealed How Everton could look in January under Ancelotti with new signings tense Salah last scored in Liverpool’s defeat of Southampton huge blow Most read in Premier League SORRY Guardiola-inspired tactics: Is this how Arsenal will line up under Arteta? 3 Did Mahrez just accidentally reveal Fernandinho is leaving Man City this summer? predicted It’s been hard-going for Salah so far this term whoops 3 Over the course of a season you can calculate how many goals every player should have scored from the chances they have had, with many players’ real performances somewhat matching those displayed by the stats. For example, Harry Kane has scored five goals this season with an xG of 5.22; he has scored 0.22 less than he should have.But for Salah, things are not going well.The Egypt star has the highest xG of any player in the Premier League this season, which means he has been presented with the best goal scoring chances in the division.However, he has underperformed his xG of 5.91 by almost three goals, having netted just thrice this term. latest It was a season to remember for Salah The average first-team salaries at every Premier League club in 2019 Boxing Day fixtures: All nine Premier League games live on talkSPORT His xG vs real goals difference of 2.91 is the biggest in the division, with Callum Wilson, the Bournemouth forward, ranking second having underperformed his xG by 2.34 goals.Salah’s xG performance this season is wildly different to that from his record-breaking previous campaign. He was the Premier League’s top scorer in 2017/18 with 32 goals, but according to xG he had no right to finish anywhere near that total.Salah overperformed his xG by an incredible 6.86 goals (25.14 expected goals vs 32 real goals) last term, which marked him as the best finisher in the division.But in a wild swing that appears almost instantaneous, Salah has gone from an incredible goal scorer to the worst finisher in the entire Premier League.

Relatives of the four Royal Household Cavalrymen who died in the July 1982 blast have won a civil action against Downey, which was brought to court following the collapse of a criminal case in 2014.Mrs Justice Yip ruled on Wednesday that the Hyde Park bombing was “a deliberate, carefully planned attack on members of the military.“I have found that the defendant was an active participant in the concerted plan to detonate the bomb, with the intent to kill or at least to cause serious harm to members of the Household Cavalry.”Squadron Quartermaster Cpl Roy Bright, aged 36, Lt Dennis Daly, aged 23, Trooper Simon Tipper, aged 19, and L/Cpl Jeffrey Young, aged 19 were killed by a car bomb packed with nails as they rode past on their way to the changing of the guard at Buckingham Palace.Downey, who did not appear in the London court, filed a defence denying any involvement in the attack.Downey is currently in custody facing other charges for the murder of two UDR soldiers in an IRA bomb attack in Enniskillen in 1972.High Court rules John Downey was responsible for IRA bombing was last modified: December 20th, 2019 by Staff WriterShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)
